The season of Advent provides an opportunity for spiritual renewal for followers of Christ. But often what happens is that we get so caught up in the hurry and rush, the hustle and bustle, the frantic pace of the season that we emerge more spiritually exhausted than refreshed, more disillusioned than inspired to face the coming of a new year. We may have tried so hard to enjoy the holiday season, to recapture a sense of wonder and mystery, only to end up asking, Is that all there is? The purpose of Advent, A Calendar of Devotions 2013 is to help you focus on the things that truly matter during this busy season, so that you can experience spiritual renewal.
Advent, A Calendar of Devotions 2013 is a booklet of daily devotions for the season of Advent (the four weeks before Christmas) that helps you step back from the bustle and stress of the season and prepare your heart and mind to rejoice in God's loving gift, Jesus Christ. Each daily devotion includes a recommended Scripture reading, a Bible verse, an inspiring message, and an uplifting prayer.
